This paper is an application by Turkey for Full Membership of SCAR as an Initial Stage Program. The letter of application and an annex on scientific work undertaken and to be continued by Turkey are provided. Turkey acceded to the Antarctic Treaty in 1996 and is a non-consultative party. It adopted the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty in 2017.
The Delegates consider the application of Turkey for Full Membership of SCAR.
Initial Stage Membership fees are $12,400, which would represent an additional annual positive contribution to SCAR's budget, above the Associate Member Fees currently contributed by Turkey.
